VAT on Private School
at 15:52 13 Jun 2024

This policy will hurt the parents who scrimp and save to get their kids into private school and won't effect the higher earners.

Unless more opportunities are given to state school kids this policy will effectively have the same effect as FFP by maintaining the status quo and punishing those trying to go up a level in society.

Personally I've no problem with private schools being exempt from VAT as they are non profits. If they were privately owned it would be a completely different story.

VAT on Private School
at 15:22 13 Jun 2024

I wonder what sort of figures they've run. 20% on £15k is £3k however the funding for a state primary pupil is over £4.5k and a secondary pupil nearly £6k so if they end up in a mass migration scenario they may not actually raise a large net sum via this policy.

Transfer Rumours: Stuart Watson Verdict
at 17:03 7 Jun 2024

It could be the hamstring injuries are down to his physical development. Different sport but young fast bowlers notoriously have a lot of back/hamstring related injuries in their early twenties then become a lot less injury prone from their mid 20s onwards. Pat Cummins one example that springs to mind.

Tom Hunt to potentially defect to Reform

Bizarrely I was wondering whether this might happen yesterday. I imagine given he's absolute toast he'll go whichever way is the most financially beneficial to him.

I think Peacock is the American option. Got a friend who subscribes.

This guy has breathed in the same oxygen as Pep which seems to count for a lot these days. I mean it gets you the manager's job at Bayern off the back of a relegation.

Don't know if you still can but you used to be able to send off for your last 50 or so stickers. That's what I'm doing if that service is still available.

I think it’s fair to say Jacob has now covered every eventuality. His bets are very much hedged.

Professsional football club trials.... thoughts?!
at 11:06 24 May 2024

Given the obsession over certain attributes for outfield players at least, I'm surprised clubs don't do something similar to the NFL combine alongside the game part of trials.

Sounds exactly like the trial I had at Cambridge as a kid. Interestingly that was when Dan Ashworth and Ricky Martin were there which is why I'm surprised they've both done so well in football!

Chelsea it is then
at 09:12 24 May 2024

I get the feeling that now he has a huge following Fabio very much gets his stories from agents in return for a pile of cash. It’s doesn’t make sense that he’s only just picking up on this now.

Brighton confident of landing McKenna ahead of Chelsea...
at 15:28 23 May 2024

Disregarding the fact Chelsea are horrible club with a useless owner, it will be very hard to follow in Poch's footsteps as the players have been quite public in their admiration for him on social media.

Often as a manager you're going into the dressing room as a breath of fresh air after the relationship between the former manager and players had broken down. I can think of a few occasions where following on from a popular manager has been a poisoned chalice.

If he really has to go....
at 11:31 23 May 2024

Horrible clubs. Football is for the fans and the big clubs couldn't care less about their fans. I've got no time for clubs that charge their loyal fans ridiculous ticket given the amount of revenue they get from elsewhere. Saw a post on Twitter that this year Chelsea were charging £180-£240 for seats that last year cost £80. Needless to say a number were empty.

Got a mate that's a Spurs fan who said the club would rather a tourist fan has a ticket over a loyal fan because they'll spend silly money in the club shop.

It's all about greed with the top clubs.

There's still a chance Chelsea could end up with a points deduction after the 'Derby County' stunts they've pulled to try and keep within FFP.

Someone accused him of using this season as a future audition for the Man City job - playing a style that would appeal to their hierarchy as opposed to one that might keep Burnley up.

I'd be against us giving a player those type of wages this season however not McKenna. He's earned it and is certainly worth that to us.

Story of the Season book
at 16:00 21 May 2024

Apologies to Phil if I've broken any rules here, however for those like me who are rapidly building up a collection of promotion mementos, Town fan Marcus Parrott has just launched pre-orders of his latest book. I bought the last one and absolutely loved it. Great price as well!

You’d think Cooper learned a lot from that whole experience so would be a good shout. Not sure I buy the Rob Edwards links given how Ashton has managed to keep any transfer news under the radar.
